We strive to offer an environment that supports the whole health of youth and our community. We support health through its full integration into the school day with a focus on quality nutrition, physical activity, outdoor learning, culinary skills and social-emotional learning. We are committed to providing an enriching, supportive environment in which children can grow in their academic skills and self-confidence while establishing healthy habits for life, and where families can draw mindful and nourishing resources.
